necessary etreet Improvements were

We are not advised at to the condition
of the oily treasury, but it ia certain

operating a creamery and cheeae lao
tory. The capital stock of the corpor
ation li placed at $3000, divided into

creamery In operation by the first of
May, and the milk from about 200
cows has already been pledged by the

never miss an opportunity to add a
new industry to tbeir thrifty city.
Comet Failbd to Coknbot. 'The
Comet that waa to have arrived last
Saturday must have keen taaveling so
fast it could not atop. Many people
watched with considerable anxiety,
however, for the moment to come
when the earth should be destroyed In
an instant, but the fatal moment did
not appear, and next day the astro-
nomloal crank who bad made the pre'
diction informed a publio in suspense
that toe monster was sixty million
miles away, and traveling at rapid
rate in the opposite direction. The
comet most have heard that congress
waa in session and desired to annex it
aa a part of the United States.
Thb Bailey Ebtatb, W. J. Bice,
guardian of Willie A. Bailey, a minor,
has Wed bts report wiib me county
clerk aa requested by order of the
county court. The report shows ths
amount that haa come into the hands
of said guardian aa being 91,106, and
the amount paid out 9932.60, leaving
a balance on band of wna.w belong
ing to the estate. The estate, bow
ever, ie not settled, and the expense of
the closing scenes In this dramatic
transaction are yet to come out of the
pittance remaining on hand. Oue
thing ssems certain, that when the
9173.60 remaining on hind is exhaust
ed the estate will be finally closed up
and the child, who a few years ago,
had sufficient resources lor Us support
will be left to the csre of the cold
world. The county judge haa not yet
examined the report, hence it ia not
known what order will be made in the
Birthday Party. Laat Tuesday
evening a number of the young friends
ol Miss Laura Doan gathered at the
home of her parents in this city and
gave her a complete surprise party, the
occasion being the anniversary of the
young lady's sixteenth birthday. The
evening was spent in social intercourse
and games, and Miss Laura waa the
recipient of many vsluable and useful
presents. Those present were Mr.
and Mrs. 0. F. Dosn, Mr. and Mrs.
Judson Weed, Mr. and Mrs. W.A.
Harris, Mrs. Cole, Misses Grace Milea,

many happy returns of the event.
Kbix y-Lambbrsok Casb Judge E.
D. Bhattuck, before whom waa tried
the case of Kelly against Lsmberaon,
in the circuit court a short time ago,
has rendered a decision in favor of the
defendant. We understand the court
finds that "the deed of February 22,
1876, from Aaron Broylea to John
Fronts, conveyed legal title with
merely an understanding, unevldenced
by any writing, that Frants should re
convey to him or to such person as he
(Broyles) should suggest! That he
did suggest that it be reconveyed to
himself and his wife, and the deed of
August 12, 1876,.was msdo at bis sug
gestion and in accordance with bis
wishes, and waa read over twice in
presence of alf the partlea and the
officer taking the acknowledgment at
the time of execution thereof, and that
there was no fraud, or interlineation,
or false or fraudulent insertions. And
as a conclusion of law defendants were
entitled (o a deoree of dismissal ot the
suit, and for the costs of the aotion."
The plaintiff in this case was repre
sented by W. J. Bioe and the defense,
by Dillard A Cole.
To Cabb fob Edna Baxter Ed
mund B. Gardner andMarilla E. Gard
ner, his wife, have petitioned the coun
ty court of Multnomah county to adopt
Edna V. Baxter; the 6-year-old child
of George W. Baxter and Luorelia
Virginia Baxter, ssys the Oregonian.
The petitioners state llmt George W.
Baxter is now in the county jail, and
is charged with the murder of his wife,
and that Marilla E. Gardner is a full
sister of Lucretia V. Baxter, deceased,
and the nearest of kin to Edna Baxter,
and has an interest in educating, wel
fare and training. In addition, it is
alleged thut Edna Bailor, during the
lifetime of her mother, lived in the
family of the petitioners for a long
time, to-wit, from June, 1803, until
February, 1894,-iu June and July ol
the same year, and from Ootober, 1894,
until November, 1806, and she ia very
much attached to them, and her fath
er and mother frequently expressed a
desire that In case anylning should
ever happen to them or either of tbera
they should adopt hert also, that the
child has frequently desired to make
her home witu the petitioners, and
would cry and be ery much heart
broken when taken away. In conclu
sion, it Is claimed that the petitioners
are of sufficient means and ability to
provide for and bring up the child.
On February 18th Wm. Gilmore and
wife filed a petition for the adoption
of the child, accompanied by the writ
ten consent ol the father, George W.
Baxter. Relative to this oonsent. the
Gardners assert that, as Baxter mur
dered his wife and is now awaiting
trial on a a indictment for I hat offonse,
bo should not be considered in the
matter of the adoption of his child.
He is not a proper person to advise
with, and his sanction should go lor
naught. The county court will set a
day and hear the claims of the rival
petitioners and determine the question.
Thi Astoria Depot Bim Maes
meetings and private efforts of every
kind have failed to bring anything like
order ont of the chaos Into which the
question ot a depot site for Astoria's
new railroad ia plunged. The papers
all speak in lugubrious tones of the
situation, the Astorian's plaint being
as follows: "It is with pain that we
have to note the almost complete fail
ure of the meeting of the people called
Saturday night to devise ways and
means for securing the scow bay depot
site. It had been confidently expected
by all, not only those directly inter
ested, but the oilizens at large firmly
believed that a means ot solving the
problem would have been found that
night. The Astorian has endeavored
in every possible way to aid the ad
vancement of the best interests of the
town f all seem to realise that the cen
ter ia the plaoe for the principal sta
tion none desire to seethe depot go
out of town; it is certain that the
amount of ground aaked for ia too email
if anything, for the amount ot busi
ness to be bandied, and yet a general
apathy on the part of most, and the
refusal of the owner of one of the larg
est tracts to be procured to plaoe a
price of any kind on his property,
have apparently killed not only the
opportunity of securing any accept
able site, but all hope of any active
construction this year. If there are
any patriotic oititens in Astoria now
la the time lor tbem to abow their col'
ore and make some effort to retrieve
Ehforcino Fish Laws. Upon com'
plaint of Fish and Game Protector Mo-
Guire, Constable Connor yesterday
morning arrested Captain James Good,
of the steamer Young America ; (Jap
tain Edward Copeland, of the steamer
Kehani;anu Lewis Allen, colored, for
Violation of the Dili laws, and they
will have a bearing today before Jus
tice Geisler. It has been the custom
of persous running small steamers to
transport salmon out of aeaaon, and.
to avoid detection, the captains would
run their steamers into some wharf be
low the city, land the freight, and then
proceed to their water-front destine'
lion. Deputy Warden Frits baa kept
a close watcb on this business, and
yesterday, it appears, was able to dis
cover both defendants in a flagrant
violation of the fish laws. Several
sacks of salmon were found on the
vessels, and the two captains will be
oallsd upon to explain how they came
on tbeir boats, where they were ob
tained, and to whom the fish were to
be delivered. Oregonian, Wednesday,
A bearing waa given in - the Kebani
case Wednesday, and Captain uood
will have a hearing today.

A BOARD OF IMMIGRATION
Movement to Bring Eastern
People to Columbia.
An Organization That Should be of
Great Assistance In Develop,
lag Columbia County.
A msitlng was held in ths office of Cole
A Quick last Wednesday morning where a
county board of Immigration was organ
ised for ths purpose of co-operating with
tlis Pacific Northwest Immigration Board
of Portland, with tbs following permanent
offlcera : President, J. B. Betglei vice pres
ident, D. J. Bwltssr; secretary, E. E. Quick;
treasurer, O. H. Kswsll, The members of
tbs board so far, In addition to the officers,
are: A. B. Little, W. H. Dolman, Harrison
Allen, James Muckle, J. B. Dosn, W. H.
Conysrs and Martin White.
Tbs object of the board Is to secure Im
migration for Columbia ceunty and other
wise advance the Interests of this section of
tbs Northwest, and all persons Interested
along this line are eligible to msmbership
In ths organisation.
In order that people may understand the
plan of work laid out tp secure immigra
tion, Will stats that tbs Poolflo Northwest
Immigration Board with principal office
at Portland, bars raited ths sum of 130,000
which Is to be nsed exclusively In setting
forth to eastern people who snticipste com
ing West, ths advantages snd resoursss of
Oregon, Washington and Idaho. This will
be done by printing and distributing litera
ture pertaining to these three states
throughout ths Host. Representatives will
also be sent East In ths Interest of the or
ganisation whose especial bullosas it will
be to furnish information to prospective
Immigrants. By tbs efforts of tbs board in
Portland the transcontinental railroads
havs mads a greatly reduced rate for emi
grants looking westward toward tbs three
states above mentioned. This reduction is
made only upon a certificate duly signed
by tbs secretary of the state organisation
or soma branch thereof, and Issued to the
person desiring transportation to ths North
Tbs state organisation does not require
any money from the local organisations,
but expects each county of tbe state to
maintain Its own board, and when people
are sent to tbem who are looking for loca
tions, the county board shall take tbem in
charge and see that they are shown over
ths oonntry, and If possible, located. When
ever sny person In ths East shall write te

ation concerning any particular county
this correspondence Is at ones forwarded to
the secretary of ths local board In that
county, who is required to furnish tbe de
sired Information, and upon ths arrival ot
such person, to see that he is shown, so for
as possible, ths advantages therein without
exaggeration or misrepresentation.
The local boards of ths several counties
are to bs composed of citizens from the
various localities, snd when a man comes
to ths secretary of tbs county organisation
for Information regarding some other part
of tbs county ths secrelsry refers bim to

take It upon himself to furnish all possible
At tbs meeting Wednesday ths secretary
of ths board in this county wss authorised
to appoint correspondents in the different
localities to set ss district secretaries. A
particular locality may have any number
of members ot the county organisation, In
fact the more tbs better, so long as they
take an Interest In ths work j but ths right
is reserved to tbs county secretary to ap
point his oonnty correspondents.
It Is very muob desired by tbe state board
that In corresponding with eastern people
no exaggerations or misrepresentations be
Indulged In, and whenever evidence of
such being done by a county secretary. Is
presented to tbs state board, that county's
organisation is no longer recognised. Facts
only can bs relied npon In a matter of this
kind, and misrepresentations invariably
prove injurious Instead of beneficial. Tbe
class of people most desired are those who
have, at least, some means In excess of
what la required to bring them here, and
without exaggerating there are sufficient
inducements here to recommend ths coun
try to people seeking new homes snd new
opportunities for profitable investments.
